    Another great sheath from @Allen Morrison for one of my favorite blades.

    Is that rust on the knife and the sheath?

    Yep. Awaiting shipping label from @Mike Perrin. @Allen Morrison is so good that he matched the sheath to the rusted knife.

    That may be the knife that breaks my "I don't need more knives" thought process.

    Used mine last Thursday to gut and skin a nice doe my dad shot. Worked great, very nimble, stayed comfortable for the duration and the handles provided a nice grip with no slip. I touched up the edge a time or two but that’s mainly cause I was rushing and had quite a bit of bone contact. Great knife.

    I’ll get to use mine when it comes back from @Allen Morrison (no rush keep it as long as you need it) but I got to use @Strigidae at bushcraft. It makes short work of raccoon and possum, has a great in hand feel. I could see it replacing the need for a folder on a daily basis.

    The 2.5 will most likely be my next knife purchase! And @Allen Morrison will be getting my business when i do! :)

    CR2.5 is the most under-rated knife in our line. Great little hunting knife and every day carry. I don't hunt but we've been getting some good feedback from folks who do and they love it. Not real pretty but nothing we have is, well, except Mike Perrin.

    I agree it is a great little skinning knife.

    Yep, mine worked great on deer. I got it because it’s similar shape to my havalon Piranta but more solidly built, obviously.

    Still on my short list with the Junglas II. Seems like a good farm and field knife.

    I love my cr2.5. It bumped my izulas and candiru into storage. I carry it in my front pocket in an @Allen Morrison sheath.
